EJU Presents Awards, Provides Education

More than 150 lawyers and advocates involved in providing civil legal assistance across Tennessee gathered last week at Paris Landing State Park for Equal Justice University, an annual educational program sponsored by the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS) and the Tennessee Bar Association (TBA). The event also celebrated two individuals dedicated to providing access to justice in Tennessee -- Nashville lawyer Margaret L. Behm and Adrienne Kittos from Justice for Our Neighbors. Among the speakers at EJU was Buck Lewis, the Tennessee Supreme Court's Access to Justice Commission Chair and a former TBA president. Lewis spoke passionately about the critical importance of working on behalf of clients in need, even in the midst of great challenges. See photos from the event.
